I looked closer and see that chamfer is called out for all of the holes as well..
Per practice problem drawing "The Hub Plate" there is a note stating: 1/2 Fillet Weld with an arrow pointing to the weld. That's odd that the weld calls for a fillet whereas, the four holes at each corner calls for a chamfer.

It is an online course offered by worldclasscad.com.

2. A FILLET WELD and the radiusing of a corner (FILLET) have nothing in common except the word "fillet" pronounced two different ways. If a placed a fish on the sink and told you to fillet the fish would you weld it, round its corners or take a knife to it.

3. You can see from the attached PDF that the weld is a chamfer not a fillet as it is a straight line and not a curve like a fillet would produce and has been shown.

And yeah it is much simpler doing it in 3D mate.

The instructor needs to go back to school - he/she is teaching you obsolete 20yr old techniques.
And the drawing is incorrect - the crosshatch should be going in different directions and missing lines (two parts welded together).
If I get a chance I will post an image of a solution using a modern MCAD software (Autodesk Inventor).

That ain't all that wrong with it. Look how out of scale the mount holes are. Text says 3/16"...they are drawn closer to 3/8" looks like to me.

9. ## Dimensioning a circle in isometric view

I can't find anywhere in autocad help about dimension a circle in isometric (clicked on ellipse icon on the draw section of the home panel) view. Is there any way you can dimension a circle in isometric view?

I'd do the whole thing in 3D then set up an isometric view in a paper space viewport.
